THEY WERE MISFITS. COWBOYS WITH NO CATTLE. RANCHERS WITH NO LAND. REBELS WITH NO WAR.
In 1890, America was closing in on them. So there, on a piece of Arizonan land fit only for misfits, they built Ocotillo. And for that town of a thousand desperate men and women there was only one man for the High Sheriff of Mogollon County - Farris Rand. Tough enough to keep them in line and smart enough to keep the rest of the world out. But Farris Rand had something to hide. A mistake he'd made years ago. A mistake that one day rode into town with a gun and a vengeance. A mistake a man can pay for in only one way - with his life.

The author of more than seventy books, Brian Garfield is one of USA's most prolific writes of thrillers, westerns and other genre fiction. Raised in Arizona, Garfield found success at an early age, publishing his first novel when he was only eighteen - which, at the time, made him one of the youngest writers of Western novels in print.
A former ranch-hand, he is a student of Western and Southwestern history, an expert on guns, and a sports car enthusiast. After time in the Army, a few years touring with a jazz band, and a Master's Degree from the University of Arizona, he settled into writing full time.
Garfield is a past president of the Mystery Writers of America and the Western Writers of America, and the only author to have held both offices. Nineteen of his novels have been made into films, including Death Wish (1972), The Last Hard Men (1976) and Hopscotch (1975), for which he wrote the screenplay.
To date, his novels have sold over twenty million copies worldwide. Brian Garfield died on December 29 2018. He and his wife lived in California.
